    Sorry if this has been answered, but couldn't find a good answer on search-


    I have a new iPad, and have set it up completely without hooking it up to my computer. (I prefer not to have to do this, and do everything wirelessly if possible).

    Is there a way to move my MP3s from my computer wirelessly to my iPad so that the iPad recognizes the music to play in apps (like djay) ??? ... and without using iCloud.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    The new iPad supports wifi syncing. I am doing so. Syncs my iTunes library fully.

    cool- i thought this could be sync'ed wirelessly, but i must be doing something wrong. Do I need to do an initial sync (wired sync) to get this set up?

    thx

    Well yeah you can sync with USB to turn on wifi syncing but that would require you to use iTunes.

    Once iTunes wifi sync is enabled you never have to connect again.

    To sync your iPad with the library on your computer using either a wired or wirelessly connection iTunes is required and has to be running.

    Since you didn't bother to provide any usefull information here are some details that you should have mentioned if you want any sort of help.

    Is the router configured so that wired and wireless devices can communicate with each other?
    Have you checked the firewall on the computer to see it the correct ports are opened?
    Is iTunes running on the computer?
    What version of iTunes s running on the computer?
    What version of iOS is running on the iPad?
